This course is very much a hands-on, experimental course, designed to give much freedom on choosing the research problem, encouraging innovation, and producing viable and well thought-out IoT projects,
The material is based on Dr Davide Brunelli's Basics of IoT courseware for University of Trento Master degree program students.
After that has been discussed, much of the actual material consists of issue-based research into material available on the Internet regarding Arduinos, ESP32s, LORA devices, Raspberry Pis and other devices.
This course, while it has no client for now, is a good starting point for those interested in making a career out of IoT. It is hoped that in the future, real clients will provide the course with interesting research projects.
No exam, grading is based on project.
This course is connected to the University of Trento, Italy, Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands, and other international partners as listed in the EU project "IoT Proto Labs".

This course is completed in eight weeks. The first two weeks are spent discussing Dr Brunelli's material, after which an ideation session and idea post-production session will be held to identify the projects the students will attempt to finish in the latter part of the course.
It is possible to come to the teacher with an idea of the student's own, and to see if it can qualify as an IoT project.
Feedback is given during the course and after it, in the last session of the implementation, when the projects are looked into and discussed in class.
15 - 40
This course is graded 40% on the learning diary, 60% on the project work, including the finished project.
Of the diary, the student's progress, handling of issues during the project, learning points, discussion of personal learning, and attitude towards the course are assessed.
Of the project, the student's initiative, persistence, problem solving skills and problem solving mindset are assessed.
While it is not necessary to produce a fully functional device, its viability and the remaining amount of work will be taken into account.
